Jacob Hinsdale grew up on Country Cedars Farm in Charlotte, Vermont and he continues to craft delicious Vermont maple syrup alongside his brother-in-law Travis Clark and long-time farm manager and sugarmaker Jud Swenor. Each year they harvest the firewood on the farm, tap about 1800 trees, and boil on the traditional 3' x 12' evaporator.
Country Cedars Farm is situated on about 140 acres in beautiful Charlotte, Vermont. Originally built as a dairy farm, the farm has been converted to a horse farm that boards horses, offers riding lessons, and hosts events.
The name of the farm comes from the forest of cedars that mix with the other trees planted by the famed botanist Cyrus Guernsey Pringle (or maybe even Cyrus' grandfather). The dirt road that passes through the farm yard was named after the Pringle family (aka Prindle) who were early settlers in that part of Charlotte.
